Reaching dimensions no shampoo had ever reached before
Inspired by the recommendations of a doctor treating hair loss

It started out with a hair growth clinic doctor who told us, “I wish you would make a shampoo for people struggling with hair loss.”
The patients who visited this doctor kept asking, “What should I look out for on a daily basis?
What kind of shampoo should I use?” This was a struggle unique to male pattern baldness patients.
They were desperate to know if there was something they could do to avoid making their symptoms worse.
Our mission was to create a product that could alleviate those symptoms, even just a little.

At the time, shampoos were generally expected to make hair clean and smooth.
Almost all the products on the market simply aimed at making hair shinier.
Developing a shampoo that would enhance hair’s natural growth potential was also a challenge technically speaking.

To create healthy hair, scalp care is essential

The foundation of hair care lies not in caring for hair that’s already grown, but in caring for the scalp that produces the hair.
Caring for the scalp means cleaning dirt (mainly excess sebum) from the scalp and pores. This was an important hint we understood thanks to our cooperation with doctors.

In this way, Angfa set to work creating a shampoo to clean the scalp.

The shampoo approved by patients struggling with hair loss!

In 2001, in cooperation with medical facilities specializing in hair care, the product that would become the basis for SCALP-D was born.
At the time, the product was aimed at medical hair care facilities and was not available for general sale.
Because of high praise and strong recommendations from patients who used the shampoo, in 2005 we began selling it to the public as SCALP-D.

The shampoo created to clean the scalp, based on clinical data from a total of 238,000* cases Thanks to the many men who have accepted and supported SCALP-D, it has been the number one best selling men’s shampoo for nine consecutive years since 2009. (*Fuji Keizai, “Cosmetics Marketing Outline 2018 No2,” Men’s shampoos/ rinses (2009-2017)) The “D” in SCALP-D is a reference to “doctors, dermatology, and development.” *Data from time of product development. As of 2017, we have worked to improve the product even further based on clinical data from a total of 1.9 million cases.

The scalp
comes firstprinciple

Why the scalp and not the hair?

Healthy hair won’t grow from an unhealthy scalp.
SCALP-D is not a shampoo to wash your hair.
Rather, it creates conditions for healthy hair growth by keeping the scalp clean.
